cover them in water like you would pasta

And then bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 26 minutes. They’re pretty darn chewy, so you could give them another +10 minutes if you want them more tender, but who wants to wait that long

Drain them 90% (because they will dry out if you don’t leave a litttle water) and chomp down.

To Store:

Put in tupperware, cook and use within 7-10 days or so.

I also weighed them before and after to get an accurate nutritional profile to keep in mine for portion control.

1 tablespoon = appx. 20 kcal.

1/4 cup = appx. 60 kcal.

Enjoy stirred into oatmeal and yogurt, as a cold salad with veggies, or just to chew plain

My mother ground her own whole wheat flour from wheat she purchased in 25 or 50 pound bags. There is quite a bit of wheat left and we want to use it up. I am wondering if this unground wheat would be the same thing as wheat berries. If so, I would like to cook some. Anyone know?
